Postcards from the Archive: Goodbye 2015

I’m happy to report that 2015 went slightly better than 2014, here at CM. Well, in some ways. We published a couple of pieces by Shahid Amin (this and this). Sepoy contributed more this year, reviewing some recent books on Partition (link), and Vasudha Dalmia’s and Munis D. Faruqui’s edited volume, Religious Interactions in Mughal India (link); told us tales of passports (I, II); traced depictions of Muhammad; wrote about the Matriarch of Queens; and remembered Sabeen Mahmud (here, here). Lapata’s translation of Ashk’s Falling Walls came out this year and got rave reviews. But, save for one post, Lapata went, uh, lapata from CM. AND, Sanyasi has been MIA as well. We were, however, joined by Aflatoon, “a philosopher who walks the hills of Pakistani terror territories”  (here, herehere). And we had a fair bit of guest posts and other such contributions: Nosheen Ali’s and Harita Koya’s remarks on M.M. Kalburgi; a conversation on Ayad Akhtar’s “Disgraced”; Keerthik Sasidharan on Eduardo Galeano; and @historianess on American Sniper (link). Also, I was able to do a couple of interviews (here, here, here).

Anyway …
